Bengaluru: The gruesome murder case of a 65-year-old woman, whose severed head was found in a truck carrying granite to Bagalkot has been solved by the police.

The arrested is Balachandra, he was having an affair with the deceased, Latha’s, widowed daughter-in-law.

Reportedly, Balachandra killed Latha and attempted to pass off the murder as a train accident by placing her body on the railway tracks.

On July 19, when Latha was on her way to collect her pension, she stopped at her daughter-in-law’s place in Tumakuru and had an argument over her son’s pension money.

Balachandra, who was also there offered to take Latha to the office to collect the pension. He then invited her to his house.

Latha again raised the issue of maintenance, and the duo had a heated argument and Balachandra hit her. She hit a wall and died.

To conceal the murder, he quickly dumped her body on railway tracks near Ramamurthy Nagar. He visited the spot sometime later and found a train had crushed the body into bits, with the head thrown far from the torso. He then put the head into a bag and placed it in a truck carrying granite, on its way to Bagalkot.

When unloading the material after reaching Bagalkot, the truck driver spotted the severed head and informed the police, who alerted Bengaluru police.

South Western Railway Police who were already investigating the case along with the Bengaluru police’s help unraveled details of the case and arrested the accused.
